(en) Palestine Israel, This week the joint struggle against the separation fence and occupation was focused on Gaza

Date Mon, 04 Jan 2010 11:41:59 +0200



The Gaza week started on previews Saturday demo in Jaffa, continued with Sunday march to
Gaza on the shore... Tuesday in Be'er Sheva university, Thursday at Erez road block and
this Saturday in Tel Aviv. As usual, in addition to the regular Friday demonstrations in
Bilin, Ma'asara, and Ni'ilin, we were invited to Friday in the Bidu region and Saturday in
Saffa. The Refusnics struggle continue with one of them serving another month in military
jail. The authority indignation and the extreme right continue to be in the public media,
with vacillating steps of authority to restrict our various actions. Part of the "left
leaning media" give us exposure: "A film about our friend David Reeb, was done for channel
8, by filmmaker David Ofek. Next Friday it will be a screening in Tel Aviv Cinematheque."

BIDU

"Tomorrow - Friday, January 1st - a morning demonstration will be held with our partners
from the villages of Bet-Iksa, Bet-Surik, Bidu & Bet-Duku.

Whilst Israel tries to break the West-Bank to smaller & smaller enclaves, the people of
the villages choose joint action."

Friday morning, AAtW contingent was blocked on the road to the demo and continued as
second choice to Bil'in's Friday one.

BIL'IN

"Some 30 Israelis and 25 internationals (including a group of Italian photography
students) joined the weekly Palestinian demo against the land appropriation wall in
Bil'in. This demonstration also marked the Fatah anniversary, and included a prominent
presence of the Palestinian Popular struggle Front. When the demonstrators reached the
gate, they found it open, and the soldiers wasted no time before they started flooding the
area with tear gas. The wind made it difficult to maintain the demonstration at the gate
area, and the soldiers, who slowly crept across the fence, put demonstrators who remained
at the gate area in danger of arrest. The demonstration dispersed without injuries other
than tear gas inhalation."

GAZA

Gaza week started in 26-12-09 500 joint demonstration in Jaffa. It continued on Sunday
with shore walking of AAtW initiative demonstration south of Zikim towards Gaza with 16
detained for few hours. See: demonstrators try to break the blockade on Gaza - 27-12-09

It continued 29-12-09 in Be'er Sheva university entrance:

"As part of the events marking a year following Israel's brutal attack on Gaza, a small
demonstration was held today in Be'er-Sheva, near the Ben-Gurion University. The
demonstration called for the end of Israel's occupation and the prolonged siege on Gaza
and had about 20 participants, palestinians and Jews. 30 minutes before the time scheduled
for the demo we were shocked to see that vast amounts of police forces where already near
the university gates. There were 4 large 'Transits', 2 of them were 'Yasam' (riot police),
2-3 police cars and about 20 police officers and 15 'Magav' personnel (border police).
This amount of police is unheard of for such a small demo. The chief of police on the
scene informed us that our demo is illegal (which is of course untrue) and that he was
already authorized to disperse us and make arrests. Eventually we managed to have held our
demo – with the police promise that next time they will arrest us."

"More than a thousand Palestinian and Jewish Israeli citizens from all over the country
participated Thursday in a demonstration at the Erez checkpoint on the Gaza border. The
demonstration, organized by the Supreme Committee of Israeli Palestinians and joined by
the Coalition against the Siege, was part of the international week of action against the
siege, marking one year to the Israeli attack on Gaza, and was coordinated with a similar
demonstration on the other side of the wall – in Gaza itself."

Israelis had their part in the international demo day for Gaza at the Erez road / block
terminal Thursday. Erez checkpoint - 31-12-09 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgYhz46NUgQ

the left to be held in Tel Aviv Saturday evening 2-1-10

Saturday evening, about 1000 participated in the coalition march from city square towards
a meeting at the museum square with banners, placards and the samba circle. Slogan were

MA'ASARA

The commander of the Israeli state forces at the last demo of the 2009 year warned the
organizers that on the coming year the suppression of the Friday demos in Ma'asara will
intensify.

"1-1-2010 Friday Al Masara Demonstration
http://www.bilin-ffj.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=234&Itemid=1

"Over 300 protested today in al-Masara - including Israelis, internationals and activists
of neighboring villages, against the construction of the illegal Apartheid Wall and
settlements on the lands of the nine intertwined villages to the South of Bethlehem.

Protesters walked through the villages towards the construction site of the wall, but as
every Friday for the past few years, they were intercepted by dozens of soldiers who had
again cut off the main road with a barb wire fence. Protesters waved flags and chanted
slogans through a mobile sound system, while some accompanied the demonstration on horses
in an expression of pride of the ongoing popular resistance in the face of increasing
crack downs.

Women from the villages held posters of their imprisoned sons and detained activist from
the Bethlehem district and lead in chants demanding the release of all political
prisoners. Senior Palestinian officials, including Minister Maher Ghneim, gave speeches
expressing their support for the Popular Committees commitment to resisting Israels
colonial policies and its success in mobilizing continuous support from local,
international, and Israeli activists.

Todays demonstration, which commemorated the foundation of the Fateh movement, comes
following threats issued two days ago to the Popular Committee warning that its members
would be blacklisted and arrested if the protests in al-Masara continued in 2010.

Therefore, the soldiers, who had taken position behind the barb wire, appeared more tense
than usual. One soldier repeatedly aimed his weapon at the protestors from a hill
overlooking the street. At one point, soldiers pushed into the crowd, when children
attempted to remove the barb wire. As the aggression increased, the Israeli army fired
tear gas and sound bombs at the crowd and five military vehicles entered deep into the
village of al-Masara. Soldiers continued to shoot teargas for an hour and remained at the
entrance of the village until 15h. One child was hit by a sound bomb and had to be carried
away while soldiers were still shooting. Several protestors suffered gas inhalation, and
other injuries were reported. Al-Ma'sara Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements".

NI'ILIN

Friday 25.12.2009 Ni'ilin video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjEiSAOExw8

"Dear All, The Ni'ilin demonstration tomorrow (1/1/10) is the central demonstration
commemorating the 45th Fatah movement anniversary. The people of the village hope to see
our massive attendance."

"Friday 1-1-10 in Ni'ilin too, nearly 300 demonstrators gathered to commemorate the
Fatah's movement 45th anniversary. After the prayer, the demonstrators went marching &
chanting to the route of the wall. On arrival, the large number of youth divided to a few
groups, each confronting the soldiers and the roaring jeeps at a different location. After
an hour & a half of such confrontations, the soldiers invaded the village fields in large
numbers – to be confronted with the tireless youth there. Today, in a "brilliant"
maneuver, managed a group of soldiers to surprise a group of demonstrators standing on a
hill watching, and stormed them whilst shooting rubber coated steel bullets directly at
the fleeing demonstrators. This new method of crowd control leaded to two injuries – on
young boy hit in his head with a rubber bullet, and one of the paramedics in his leg.
Furthermore, one of the demonstrators failed to escape the storming soldiers and was
arrested by them. Only till sunset did the last confrontations fade away."

REFUSNICS

"Support the struggle against the occupation- Support the “Shministim” We ask you to help
us to arrange demonstrations that will take place simultaneously in different locations,
including the one that will be in Israel when Or is in jail.

SAFFA

"There will probably be a tree planting day on Saturday at Saffa. if you can come please
let me know. The more people we have the faster it will go."

trees in the rarely accessible lands.
